This tournament was my first time seeing the kid play outside of highlights and I can say that he looks like the real deal.
His puck skills and vision are elite when compared to his peers and he's so calm out there.
He just seems to make the right play and makes it look easy.
This tournament was filled with great players but every time he was out there, he just managed to grab my attention.
Nice little piece of redemption for Quenneville and Benson after losing to NWSC at Westerns last year in Stony Plain.
